Too much

Lots of photos in this one so I'll not do too much writing! Nice weather again and plenty of close sightings on this tour - Swallows are everywhere now.
There had been rain overnight so it was no surprise to find a Dipper at the mouth of a stream.
This 2 year old WT Eagle gave us a nice fly past...
...and a pair of Golden Eagle were flying around...
...above an adult WT Eagle.
We saw plenty of GN Diver but some of the views were like this!
A Greenshank was a surprise find as I haven't seen any for a couple of weeks.
Finally we have a few waders arriving - Dunlin on the beach.
We also picked up a Sedge Warbler singing on the fence.
A Black-tailed Godwit flew off... this Brent Goose wandered down to the sea. This bird was ringed on 21st March at North Bull Island, Dublin.
Plenty of Rock Pipits to be seen...
...and the Lapwing chicks have hatched.
I've not had Rock Dove on the blog for a while so here it is.
There are not too many Golden Plover around at the moment and this single bird was very confiding.
Skylark - I'll say no more.
